 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Randy Johnson will make his first spring training start Monday.
The Arizona Diamondbacks' left-hander is expected to pitch two innings against the Colorado Rockies at Hi Corbett Field, another sign of progress as he returns from back surgery.
``Everything's gone on schedule,'' Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin said Sunday. ``This is right around the first date that we thought that he would potentially take the mound in a game.''
The 44-year-old Johnson went 4-3 with a 3.81 ERA in 10 starts for Arizona last season, the last on June 28, before undergoing his second back operation in less than a year.
Melvin said he has not projected Johnson's first regular-season start. The Big Unit enters the season with 284 career wins.
``It's all going to be outing to outing,'' Melvin said. ``With him, we're not even close to that yet.''
Melvin said the Rockies have agreed to his request to use a designated hitter so Johnson won't have to bat.
